Titus Maccius Plautus' career is on the decline. Once famous for bringing Greek comedies to the Roman world, now he struggles to stage a single play. Unlucky with money and unlucky in love, Plautus faces the world with wry dignity. This could be the performance that returns fortune and reputation, or the one that ends it all. Engaging, thoughtful, and funny, "The Comedian" dives into the rough and tumble world of arts in its infancy. Martini draws on his experience to bring to life the signs and sounds of a world where playwrights suffered and succeeded - but mostly suffered.
